By now I’m sure most all of you have seen The Gobbledy Gooker’s infamous debut at Survivor Series 1990 where he hatched from an egg, and square danced with Mean Gene Okerlund to “Turkey In The Straw”. But did you know he appeared in vignettes shortly afterward on WWF Superstars and WWF Challenge? I guess they wanted to get some Continue Reading...

It Came From YouTube: Jesse Ventura figure political ad

Crapper Little Louie P (The Doctor Of Style!) writes: These poor child actors probably had no idea what they were doing in this ad for Jesse Ventura’s 1998 campaign for governor. I guess the stupid ad worked, though! Okay, that’s pretty creative, I’ll admit… and I totally would have bought a talking Governor Jesse Ventura action figure and desk play Continue Reading...

It Came From YouTube: Steve Austin suffers a humiliating loss in WCW

Crapper Little Louie P (The Doctor of Style) writes: It was the mid-90s, and WCW had a hot young heel named Stunning Steve Austin. When US champ Ricky Steamboat was too hurt to wrestle him, they awarded him the title–but didn’t leave it at that. Instead, they brought out a man making his WCW debut and forced Austin into a Continue Reading...

It Came From YouTube: Family Guy + MS Paint + Wrestling Themes = Crap

Crapper Thomas writes: Found these on YouTube and realised they must be shared for ridicule… clearly someone who cannot spell, cannot get wrestlers names correct and has very little connection between the characters and the entrance music… surprised it wasn’t Mike Adamle behind these… Wow… This is the kind of thing a not-so-bright 10 year old would make with MS Continue Reading...

It Came From YouTube: Real subtle, guys…

This is from Herb Abrams’ short-lived UWF promotion in 1990. I’m just going to copy and paste from Scott Keith’s latest Wrestling Observer Flashback because Dave Meltzer and Scott explain quite nicely how stupid this is: The debut tapings for the UWF finally did take place in Reseda on 9/24 drawing 425 people (I hear it’s a long day, livin’ in Continue Reading...

Back in the 90’s TBS used to have Super Scary Saturday where they’d show Sci-Fi and Horror movies. And they were hosted by “Grandpa Munster” Al Lewis himself! In this episode, Grandpa was showing King Kong Vs. Godzilla! Al decides to ask Jim Cornette and Michael P.S Hayes (AKA: Future WWE t-shirt shiller Dok Hendrix) for their opinions on the Continue Reading...

It Came From YouTube: Do as WWE says, not as they do.

For years now WWE has been promoting the idea of stopping bullying. So Be A Star and don’t be a bully! Great! Except there’s just one little problem…  Wrestling by its’ very nature is all about heels bullying faces and often not facing any consequences for their bullying. So kids might see the real Stephanie talking about how bad bullying is up Continue Reading...

Scott Keith posted this commercial in a recent Wrestling Observer Flashback and I just had to share it here. It’s John Nord (AKA: The Berzerker) as Nord The Barbarian doing a commercial for a used car dealership! If you don’t love every second of this commercial then you are simply on the wrong website, bucko!...

It Came From YouTube: John Cena is nuts about pistachios (and also, he’s an elephant).

John Cena is Ernie The Elephant! Elephant Ernie’s/John’s dialogue sounds like something straight out of a 1998 Attitude Era episode of Raw.  Lords Of Pain says thusly: John Cena and Seahawks player Richard Sherman are appearing in a new ad campaign from Wonderful Pistachios to educate fans on the nutritional benefits of pistachios. Cena is voicing Ernie The Elephant, a pistachio-loving Continue Reading...

Crapper Jim Shea writes: What happens when you try to take Body Slam: The Movie and bring it into reality in the year 1999? You get THIS! There’s good reason the concept behind Body Slam was never put into practice as you can see here with this confusing mess. But hey, let’s all party like it’s 1999 with some cheesy Continue Reading...

The Howard Stern Show, 1992 Poor Corey Feldman. Last Friday, the former child star of such 1980’s classics as The Goonies, Stand By Me and Friday the 13th Part IV: The Final Chapter broke out his microphone and Michael Jackson-inspired dance steps for a live musical performance on the Today show. And faster than you can say “hashtag,” all the Continue Reading...
